Spoonflower designers are on point with Pantone's 2014 Color of the Year, Radiant Orchid. We're lost in these orchid-influenced fabrics, wallpapers, and wrapping papers. Purple, traditionally the color of royalty, derives its name from the Greek πορφύρα (porphura), the name for Tyrian Purple, a dye made from the mucus of the spiny dye-murex snail! 2013's Emerald served as a symbol of growth, renewal and prosperity, and Pantone describes their purple pick for 2014 as “an enchanting harmony of fushia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health."
